(audience reacts). (laughter) oh, oh, oh, that is just wrong. because he's not doing a heck of a job. the point is, obama couldn't make health care work, so his legacy is now set-- bad at using technology to extend life, good at using technology to end it. (audience reacts) and this failure goes beyond the web site, folks. remember, the president repeatedly said "if you like your plan, you can keep it." but now millions of plans are being canceled. so last week, the president he

happening again? >> obama care is here now. so you know the reason this happened from our perspective was -- now people understand why we fight obama care so much i guess. you have to understand the mindset of a house republican going into this. we were doing all of these oversight hearings, getting all of this testimony, seeing that this program was not ready for prime time and seeing the damage that was going to come to the people we represent and we wanted to do everything we could to stop it. many of us didn't think that was the right way to stop it. it's very clear that a government shutdown does not stop obama care because the government did shut down and didn't stop obama care. don't think that will be repeated. that's in the past. it's very clear that won't stop obama care. the things that we feared would happen are now happening and we fear the worst is yet to come with respect to obama care. that will not get in the way of a government shutdown. we will keep the government funded at current levels if need be at the end of the day and not have a government shutdown. >> that w
